Zara's latest and aptly named "In the Evening" lookbook isn't just a glimpse of what's new — it's a lesson in holiday dressing strategy. In it you'll find not more than a handful of pieces, few colors, and just a hint of shine, but page after page of the newest looks never get tired. If you subscribe to the more minimalist holiday dress code, this is clearly for you.
But even if you're typically the bells and whistles type, it's hard to resist the more subtle allure of a sheer crop top, a smattering of cool sequins, and yes, even jeans. Suffice it to say, this is exactly what we want to look like at all of our holiday soirees. You too? Just click through for more outfit ideas — and plenty to shop!
The company holiday party dress code can be a tricky one to a decipher. Attire can range from casual to dressy depending on where you work, but one rule remains the same: always err on the conservative side. The key to getting it right? Temper high heels and fun jewels with minimal pieces, stray away from supersexy silhouettes, and don't go overboard on the makeup. Check out our chic, work-appropriate picks, from beautiful brocade tops to pretty, fit-and-flare dresses.
